Hey Guys! 

The event was a huge success and I want to thank the team at Eat, Drink & Be Merry for making the planning portion super easy! You guys took care of everything so all I had to do was have a good time and enjoy my time with my friends. 

The party package is such a great deal! Thanks again for making everything super easy and enjoyable!

Hello sorry for the delay! Ending and beginning of the year are huge days. Paperwork is immense!

Otherwise, our party was amazing! I can not be anymore grateful and appreciative of your company and party planners. They were not pushy or up selling at all throughout the whole process. They worked with me on the packages and helped me stick to my budget. I felt as if they were actually going to the party with the detail they paid to our event! It was nothing sort of amazing With that being said you guys provided some of the best food and service I have experienced. I could not be anymore appreciative and grateful that I booked with your company. Going forward I am looking to make this a tradition and you guys will definitely be a part of it. If there is anyone I have to email or call to put in a recommendation, please let me know. 

You guys deserve the fan fare.

Thank you so much,

It was a pleasure working with you and your team Christine.  You guys were quick to respond to all of our questions, very flexible in accommodating our requests, gave us good guidance on how to order and had all the details covered.  The room was perfect – big enough to spread out, but small enough to still give us a feeling of togetherness.  It had everything you possibly need – private bar, private restroom, lots of TV’s, iPod dock, and room for games.  The food was tasty (Swedish meatballs were a big hit) and they did a good job of continuing to fill it.  People flipped out when they brought out the warm chocolate chip cookies!  

We will certainly look to you guys for our next function. Thanks for everything!

Nothing constructive to offer! The whole team was absolutely fantastic, from the four of you to Jason to Marcus. From beginning to end, everyone was disarmingly friendly, patient and accommodating—which I have rarely found to be the case planning parties anywhere, especially in New York City. 

The room was gorgeous, the food was delicious (and executed/delivered exactly at the times I’d requested) and everyone had a blast.

Really can’t thank you enough for such an easy and wonderful experience—I will absolutely recommend your services to anyone hosting a party from here on out. 




My girlfriend and I cannot begin thank you and the staff of the 13th Step enough for making her birthday party truly memorable. We could not have been any happier with the professionalism both the office and the staff at the bar showed us every step of the way. Niki at the office was a pleasure to work with and her immediate responses were greatly appreciated. Nancy at the 13th Step was a joy to work with. She did an amazing job and went above and beyond in helping me decorate the room. I could not figure out how to inflate the balloons but lucky for me she was there. The bartender Johnny and the 2 servers could not have been any nicer. All of our guests commented how beautiful the room was and that the staff was first class. Several of them expressed interest in booking parties with you as they were impressed by your operation. Most importantly everyone had a great time. Thank you again and we look forward to booking our next celebration with you.

Wrap Party at The Virtue Room

September 6, 2013

Dear Kate,

Sorry this is so long in coming, but I just wanted to write you guys a quick Thank You for all you did in helping us plan our Opening Night Party at the 13th Step. You and your team are truly wonderful at what you do, and our experience working with you guys was truly special. Everyone who attended the party that night had such a wonderful time, the staff there was incredibly accommodating and gregarious and we all had a fabulous night.

We will definitely be keeping you guys in mind for all of our future event needs (fundraisers, opening night parties, etc.). And please keep us on the up and up about what’s new with privatepartyroom.com.

Thank you, thank you!



Hi Guys!

I was actually going to email you this week to thank you so much for the amazing party. It was everything I wanted it to be. Amazing deal, perfectly sized venue, awesome bartender and staff. I was worried the weeks leading up to graduation that I wouldn’t be able to get an event like this together but you all made it so easy.

Thanks and I will definitely be in touch for future events

Hi Christine, Kate, Niki and Brittany

Thank you so much for helping me organize my Best Friend’s Bachelorette party.  We had a great time!.  The 13th Step staff were wonderful.  Very attentive, helpful and quick to resolve any issues I had during the party.  I would highly recommend Eat, Drink and Be Merry to plan any event.  I would also recommend The 13th Step because it was perfect for a party.  Everyone that attended had a great time, enjoyed the food and the location.

Thanks again!

My party was fantastic!!!!!!!! Everything was fantastic!!!

The room was amazing and exactly the right size for my guest to feel comfortable and not cramped. 

The bartender was absolutely fantastic. He mixed drinks like a champ and was very diligent about telling me how much was left on the bar tab.

The food… Amazing! My guest were all raving about how delicious everything was. My mom couldn’t believe a slider could taste that good!

The bouncer was so attentive to the door and although he looked like one tough dude, he was extremely sweet.

This entire experience working with Eat Drink and Be Merry has been so great!!! You took so much stress out of what is normally a daunting process.

Thank you all so much for making my 25th so amazing!

Dear Christine, Kate, Niki, & Brittany,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to all of you.  Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful and Happy New Year.

I just want to express my deep appreciation for a wonderful party you supplied us with.  From the food, to the drinks to the karoke…everyone had a terrific time.

I must admit it is the first time I have never heard a negative remark about a company affair.  I truly look forward to working with all of you in the near future.

Many thanks to Andrew for opening the door…and of course all of you who made this happen.

My Wishes for A Wonderful 2013,

The party was a great success from start to finish. Everyone at Eat Drink & Be Merry was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. Everyone at 13th Step was also very accommodating . My father was on crutches at the party, and the staff was extremely helpful to him. The food was also very good and stayed pretty warm the whole night. I really appreciate all your help and will definitely keep you in mind for future events.

I want to THANK YOU guys so much for everything! The entire night was perfect and we had a blast, I couldn’t have imagined it going better. The food was great and thank you for setting up the additional “table” for us too. The reviews online are all absolutely true, everything I read was positive and I wasn’t concerned a bit that you guys wouldn’t handle everything perfectly. I will definitely be in touch and will be sure to refer anyone I know looking to throw a party. Thanks again for a memorable night!



Everything went so well at my party on Friday July 27th! I was very pleased. 

Prior to the day of the party, your staff was very patient with me while I made my decision on which bar to hold my party. Everyone was able to answer my questions and I felt like someone was always available. Also prior to the party, I got a check in call to make sure I had everything I needed which was very helpful. 

The day of the party, everyone on staff introduced themselves and we’re very helpful. I felt like I could call on anyone and they were able to help. 

All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience. 

Thanks again!!!


Hi Niki,

Just wanted to thank the Eat, Drink and Be Merry staff for helping me plan my sister’s surprise 30th birthday party at The Vice Room. The party ran smoothly, the food was pentiful and delicious. Everybody had an amazing time, another successful party your company has helped me pull off. Thank you again for all of your help, you helped make my sister’s 30th a very memorable one.




I had a BLAST at our private party! Everything went perfectly and I can’t say enough about all of the staff. From the bouncers, to the event coordinators and to our bartender, everyone was wonderful and accommodating. The room size worked great for our party of 35 people – no one wanted to leave!

Thanks so much to everyone for a memorable evening. We will surely recommend the “Vice” room to our friends for future events.


Our party was great!  Everything was set up exactly as we discussed.  I was very impressed with how diligent your team was along the way – look forward to planning another event with you – thanks!


Thank you so much for such an amazing night! All my guests were raving about the space and the food.  Everyone was so wonderful and nice. Bryce and Jason (the bartender) were so attendant and constantly checked in with me throughout the night.  The barback was helpful as well.  I think the favorite thing of the night (besides the open bar) was the macaroni and cheese wedges!

 Thank you again for all your help along the way.  I will definitely recommend my friends to you when they want to plan a party!

Hi All – 

The party was great!  The bartender (Jason) was great to me and the bouncer was really friendly and helpful.  The Vice Room is an awesome private party venue – complete with a big full bar, scattered (but not over-crowded) stools and tables, a bathroom, access to fold-out banquet tables, and even a coat rack!  I’d definitely book another party there!

Thank you all very much for your help!



The planning process was very easy. Everyone there was very helpful and I liked the different options for both the bar and the food.

The party went very well. The food was good amd Heather the bartender was great. Really liked the space and the fact that you had a table and plastic cups for flip-cup made the party even better.


Eat, Drink & Be Merry, 

My roommate and I had our birthday party with you last January (with about 130 people) and everyone had such a great time, that I had to call you again to book this last party for my boyfriend’s birthday. Once again, everything was great! The staff working the party was friendly and helpful, and the process to book the party couldn’t have been easier. The girl I spoke to when I called to book the party was very nice and informative about all prices, rooms, and dates available. My roommate and my birthdays are coming up again in January and we are definitely going to be booking our party with you again. Thanks for everything!
